The Ride of A Lifetime: Lessons Learned From 15 Years as CEO of the Walt Disney Company By Bob Iger


Bob Iger shares leadership skills he’s gained in more than 45 years, starting out at ABC in 1974 and at Disney since 1995. It is liveliest when he discusses the big transactions that have transformed Disney: the acquisition of Pixar in 2006, followed by Marvel in 2009 and Lucasfilm in 2012. He also explains the reasoning behind his famous regimen of waking at 4:15 a.m. to exercise and start his day. Iger concludes the book with a list of “lessons to lead by” and some of them are quite perceptive. For example, “Value ability more than experience, and “put people in roles that require more of them than they know they have in them.”
